Eight partial cross sections of positron-rubidium (37Rb) inelastic scattering (corresponding to 0 ≤ l≤ 7, where l is the total angular momentum) are calculated at 25 values of the incident energy ranging from 0.1 to 1000 eV. The calculations are carried out using Clementi-Roetti's wavefunctions, and a combination of the coupled-static and frozen-core approximations. A comparison between the total positronium formation cross sections of the collisions of positrons with four different alkali atoms (lithium, sodium, potassium and rubidium) is presented.
